Where a deceased died with a valid Will (or testatment), his estate is said to be testate. In a testate estate, his estate (assets) will be managed by the Executor(s) appointed under the deceased's Will.
The Executor(s) appointed under the Will will usually appoint a law firm to apply to the Court for a Grant of Probate (as opposed to a Grant of Letters of Administration in an intestate estate). There are other variations of applications for grant of representation (eg. where all the appointed Executors have died).
Our Probate Practice Group has assisted numerous family in applications for Grant of Probate at the Subordinate Courts (for estate of S$3 million and below) and the High Court (for estate which exceeds S$3 million).
